Almondale has a long-standing tradition of advocating the arts. This is accomplished through annual plays and musical performances as well as the mechanical development through drawing, painting, and sculpture. Choices in projects within the classroom employ various artistic methods: puppetry, plays, storytelling, illustrations, bookmaking, and crafts, to name a few. The activities not only engage the child but more deeply reinforce the academics at hand.
